Paleo Butternut Squash Muffins

Paleo butternut squash muffins made with almond flour and coconut sugar are a fluffy, delicious breakfast or treat!

While pumpkin tends to get the limelight during the fall, I often make baked goods with other winter squash varietals as well. Take for instance my Butternut Squash Pancakes and Kabocha Squash Spice Cake

You can generally use any winter squash in a recipe that calls for pumpkin (or butternut squash, acorn squash, etc.), giving you the versatility to pick your passion!

For this exhibit of fall-inspired adventure, we’re baking up a batch of grain-free paleo-friendly butternut squash muffins. 

These butternut squash muffins are:

  • Grain-free and gluten-free
  • Oil-free
  • Refined sugar-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Light and fluffy
  • Perfectly sweet

What I love about these muffins (aside from the fact that they make your mouth feel like a million bucks) is they are a great way of using up leftover roasted butternut squash (or any leftover roasted winter squash).
